Bulgarian Bistro(No Specific Name): Local Bulgarian Bistro
A very simple eating establishment run by an elder man who does everything: the cooking and the preparation of the foods but he serves only before his counter. He doesn´t go from table to table to ask what you like. You pay right away cash what you order. He serves a style of cooking that involves using fresh salads and veges, mostly local ingredients and something delicious and nutritionally healthy recipes with natural joghurt like what is shown in my pictures.
Favorite Dish: My Favorite Recipe is the "Grilled Cevapcici with Balkan Salad and sometimes w/ white Cheese"
200 g minced meat
200 g beef
20 g flour
Season the ground beef with chili powder, salt and pepper. The minced meat with moistened hands forms approx. 5 cm long sausages, shown above on the screen. The Cevapcici should be roughly thick. Contact Cevapcici in flour and tap off excess flour. Cevapcici set covered in the refrigerator and let the flour swell 30 minutes. This makes the Cevapcici fixed and does not break when grilled.

Restaurant at Magurata Cave: A restaurant with a view
The restaurant at Magurata Cave doesn’t look like anything special from the outside. The interior is nothing special either. Bu when you sit at the terrace in the back, you have a great view of a small valley right bellow you, green hills before you, and snowy mountains in the distance. You see no trace of civilization, and the air is so fresh… The food was quite good and the service a bit slow, but while hurry with such a view. The prices were very reasonable too, the four of us had salads and/or fries, one had chicken, beer/ soda and coffee, and the price was around 16 levs ($10) altogether.

- National/State Park
Near the main square there are many restaurants. I choose restaurant Eli, which is very relaxed. The restaurant is popular among locals as it seems, and while you try to attract the attention of the waiter he nodges his head as if he says NO! The meals are about 4 lv (shopska salad and meat, that is kebab and fried potatoes)
